For starters, we have got the amazing deal from hrs.de so that we booked 2 nights in this hotel and got 1 night free.
The hotel is located in old Soviet building which however was modernized and renovated so that you cannot tell the difference. That being said the photos on most of the travel sites are better then the hotel itself appears to be.
By the way it is not that far from the city center just a pleasant five-minute walk away.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially people from reception desk (Robert and Irina Kiseljova).
We had some problems with our room but after we addressed to the staff we were transferred immediately to another room which suited us just fine.
The rooms are kept very clean.
Other perks: there is computer with free Internet access in every room and guests can use sauna 8 - 11 am free of charge.
However there are several downsides: the hotel offers great prices but tends to economize on small things like slippers and bathrobes in the rooms, no stationary and pens and no shampoo (but I guess it is still better to take your slippers and shampoo from home then to pay more for another hotel of the same range). Plus (or minus) my wife had a birthday during our stay in the hotel and nobody seemed to notice that.
Breakfast was ok but nothing more than that (they didn't change a single dish during our stay).
Overall the hotel was good, tidy and with very nice staff and was well worth the money paid. We'd definitely recommend it to everyone. Green thumb up!

Thanks for the positive review! I would like to clarify two points if i may, the bathrobe and slippers are standard features in our Zen rooms which feature upgraded amenities , are larger and have whirlpool baths, these are available for a small supplement and are very popular! in the standard rooms we have all over body and hair shampoo. I will look into how we can make this clearer for guests.
Re the photos , can you be more specific which photos are different from the product ? this is the first time i have had this comment and i am keen to learn, maybe you saw a picture of our Zen room and you stayed in a standard room? either way we always have pictures of all our room types.
Breakfast, currently we have cold and hot items, ie bacon sausage, omelettes,beans , potaotes, either croquette or hash browns, and a selection of cold items , breads etc. We have just upgraded our breads, could you let me know which other items would be welcome? many thanks

A quick taxi journey from the airport brought me to a non describe plain building which appeared to blend end with the majority of the other buildings in this area of town. Very close to the National Library, but quite a walk to town, better for a taxi ride or a bus.

A very modern and nicely decorated hotel, a warm welcome from reception in perfect English and a really nice ZEN bedroom. Free wireless, lots of extras, computer in the room and a huge bathroom.

Breakfast was a small, but good buffet style affair in the downstairs Brazilian restaurant. The hotel restaurant was not open, so I went to the Brazilian buffet adjoining, very well sized portions, nothing special, but good food.

A generally good hotel, housekeeping was a little late in the day and the minibar contents were not replaced each day.

It used to be a rather russian building, and somehow it still shows. Modern rooms, if rather bland : very clean, computer in the room, but nothing of a boutique hotel in the accommodation as both the website or the hall would suggest. You can indeed walk to the city center, or use the frequent buses just in front of the hotel. The breakfast room is supposed to be the brazilian spot of Tallinn, which may appear rather weird to most tourists. Why they don't use a rather decent restaurant upstairs is up to the management, but the quality of the breakfast food certainly could improve. All in all a rather pricey place for the overall quality.

We stayed for two nights in early July. Booked on the recommendation of a friend and were not disappointed. Although it looks a bit drab outside, its a great hotel. We got an excellent deal on a Zen room with complimentary wine and fruit on arrival. The room itself was splendid with a great bathroom and free internet computer.

Breakfast was included and tasty and overall the place had a friendly feel. Tallinn is a great place for a short break - we are really glad we stayed at the Uniquestay.

In generaly this is a very good hotel which I would fully reccommend. It is about 10 minutes walk from the old town, and right next to a bus stop which takes you to other attractions eg the Open Air Museum (definitely worth a visit!) and the Zoo.

The rooms were very clean and cleaned daily to a good standard, with towels, tea and coffee etc replenished.

The location is very quiet, however we could often hear running water (pipes? Someone having a shower?) at times like 1am from our room - which at come points sounded like being in a rainstorm in a greenhouse. So this was not ideal, but was probably the only issue with the hotel

The receptionsists spoke good English and were very helpful at all times

The breakfast was perfectly adequate - bread / cheese / cold meat / bacon / eggs / pastries. However, when things run out, only some things are replenished.

My only other issue would be that you can buy bottles of soft drink from the recpetion. These cost 45 KR, and they costs 10 - 14KR in the shops. Obviously everywhere things will be more expensive in hotels than in shops, but I think 3 to 4 times the price is excessive and very over priced.

However I would reccommend this hotel, it is value for money, clean, comfortable and peaceful, having stayed somewhere last year which was none of these it was a relief!

Me and my friend arrived Uniquestay Mihkli sunday 7th of June.

The hotel is situated approx 10 min walk outside from the beautiful old town, wich is not a problem to walk at all. On the other hand it's great - cause you get to see a little bit more of Tallinn.
(It's also just a 5 min walk from one of Estonias lagest shoppingmalls Kristina.. brilliant for two girls like us:).

Me and my friend booked the Zen-Room. The room was spacy, and absolutely clean with a fair wiev to the hotels backyard.
During our stay, we also took the time to book the Jacuzzi-room. And that is HIGHLY recommended!
The jacuzzi was great, and large, and held the same nice temperature the two and a half hours we spent in it :-) You get the whole room to yourself and the staff at Mihkli was nothing but extremely nice to us.

I thought to myself from time to time, that many of the Estonian citizents looks a little .. angry? (I might be wrong - but that was really my impression) I sometimes missed a smile when we were shopping and stuff... EXCEPT at the hotel! The service is absolutely brilliant! We got advices where to shop, where to go, what to see and how to get there and what our taxi really SHOULD cost ;-)

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone - and if you want a little extra luxury - I believe the zen-room is perfect for you.

The Hotel is perfect for travellers who doesn't eager to stay at the huge main-stream hotels like Tallink and Swissotel. If you go to Uniquestay you get a little smaller hotel where the staff takes its time to listen to you, and help you. I prefered that a lot!


Highly recommended!

I stayed in a twin room on the 5th floor for two nights in May.

The room was very clean and importantly, very quiet. Each room has free internet access which is a great plus, and for all the Brits, kettles are also provided in each room.

Breakfast was included in the price and was very good - and catered to all different nationalities.

The only downside for me was that there was no hairdryer in the room.

Uniquestay Mihkli is well located, affordable and therefore an all round good option for a stay in Tallinnn.
